Identify the first sources you go to when making a purchasing decision for a product. What made you decide to use these sources?

When I am about to make a purchasing decision for a product I do research on the internet. This makes it very easy to find out all the information about a product without actually driving to a store to look at it. Also, there are online reviews about the product that can tell about a products quality, features, attributes, and any negative aspects. The reviews are really important to me, because If I see reviews saying a product is cheap, doesn’t fit right, or bad star ratings I will find a different product. I decided to always use the internet as a source of information gathering because other people have used products that I would like to buy and have posted reviews. I normally trust reviews because people will not go out of their way to post a negative review unless they actually had a bad experience.
